Swindle jumped to Phoenix and now Jason Lambert is running a Blazer. These are 2 I have seen in the last couple days. For those in the know is this "normal off season sponsorship turnover " or is Triton having issues on the business front? Few years back when Legend dropped their Pro staff it left quite a few scrambling for a ride. I realize this is nothing compared to that but just curious.

Well the group that bought Legend put it out of business shortly after take over and now Johnny Morris with Bass Pro shop owns Triton along with other boat compainies. His boat the Nitro is typically inferior and in order to get better market share JM has basically created a monopoly without anyone noticeing. Typically Government steps in think Infinity Broadcasting. Just my opinion but it kind of makes sense with wht JM is doing in the bass boat and outdoor market.

It won't surprise me if Connell gets out of his Triton and into something else.

Triton is very healthy and from what I have seen they aren’t going anywhere.

I believe its all about the money not the boat, if the money was right some of the pros would fish from a canoe.

with invent of the internet an all the information boat companies have figured out that its not as important to have as many team boats to compete with the retail sales boats . the days of the factories picking up the expenses of the pros the pie is becoming smaller an smaller. with the watering down of real pro fishing it will even be less.

Bingo! If there were no boat sponsorships, it would be quite interesting to see what these anglers would be running.

Swindles I can see being more personal. Especially with Duckett and Klein being Triton guys and promising a bucket of gold at the end of the rainbow via MLF exposure etc.

Johnny Morris owns Triton, Nitro, Ranger, & Stratos under White River Marine. He ended Legend Boats when he bought them and those Pro's now run Rangers or Nitros. All of the people who made the Rangers, Tritons, Stratos, & Legend great boats are out the door.

BCB, Phoenix, Blazer, Bullet, & even Vexus are all better quality then anything JM owns. I wont own anything that is owned by WRM Group & JM. That's just me and my preferences, Ill stick with BCB and if I switch it will be Phoenix or Bullet.

Not sure how this turned into a Nitro bashing thread. LOL! I can run anything I want and I run Nitro Z21 by choice! I will put this boat against anything out there in every way. They are not the same boats they were 10 years ago. The funny thing is I have ran about every brand and I have nothing bad to say about any of them. Every boat has its good things and its bad things.
